"I completed my bachelor’s degree (summa cum laude) at Vanderbilt University and my medical degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine. After medical school, I moved to Philadelphia for my internship at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and then to California for my residency at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. I completed dual fellowships in Allergy/Immunology and Pediatric Rheumatology at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
In my allergy clinic, I see children, adolescents, and adults with allergic and immunologic conditions. My clinical interests are allergic conditions (allergic rhinitis/hay fever, anaphylaxis, angioedema, eczema, food allergy, pollen allergy, sinusitis), asthma, and immunodeficiency disorders.
In my rheumatology clinic, I see children and adolescents with autoimmune disorders. My clinical interests are arthritis, dermatomyositis, lupus, scleroderma and vasculitis. Oftentimes, I use ultrasound to help diagnose arthritis and provide guidance for joint injections.
I became a doctor because I enjoy working with people. I always learn from my patients, and I use the opportunity during our clinic visit to share my knowledge with you.
I promise to do my best to take care of you."
